Join Professor George Edwards of Texas A&M University to discuss the electoral college in a rigorous and nonpartisan manner.

The Constitution created the Electoral College to choose the chief executive. However, twice this century, it selected a candidate who came in second to be president. Such results are clear violations of political equality, but are there benefits from the Electoral College? Professor Edwards will evaluate a range of claims made about the Electoral College in a rigorous and nonpartisan manner.
